Question about a M3 with "Cinnamon" interior...

Okay, help me out here guys... Am I losing my mind or just remembering this wrong?

A while back, the gf and I were in Dallas, TX at the Audi dealer getting service done on her A4. Lo and behold I see a used AW M3 on the lot, so I grabbed a salesman and just asked if I could open it up and just take a look. Super cool salesman though, I told him up front I wasn't ready to buy but asked if he would mind if I just checked it out. Long story short, I got to drive my first DCT E92, he said "you don't have to buy it to drive it, if you haven't driven one, let's check it out!".

Anyway, I swear this thing had cinnamon interior... I saw my first Fox Red yesterday and it was definitely not that. It had that orange tint to it like the E46 Cinnamon. He said it was a 2010, did they do a limited run of these with that interior?

It was most likely an individual/custom order by the previous owner. It has never been a standard option.

Thanks guys, I guess I wasn't even aware that you could customize a car beyond what the website offered on a build...

Individual Rust Brown:


Cinnamon is a Nappa leather color, the E90 M3 comes with Novillo leather. To get Cinnamon in Novillo it would cost several times the cost of the Individual regular colors.

Okay thanks Technic, this is what I saw. I wasn't aware of the "Rust" color, Cinnamon was the best way I could describe it. This puts my mind at ease though.... =)
